The barricade has been gone for a year on the branch road. I think Roe still has a large ditch or blockade preventing further driving just past R200. Snowline reported at 1000m elevation a week...

The Mamquam Valley is notorious for the logging done in there but access to the alpine isn't too far away if roads are manageable. The Skookum...
